Instructions for downloading your state's advance directive documents, including instructions for completing each document, are included. Again, there is no charge for these documents.

To download your state's advance directive documents via Caring Connections, click here:  free advance directive documents.

If you would like to be added to the NHPCO's mailing list and receive end-of-life care information, please click here:  end-of-life care information.

If you choose to use any of these documents in your own estate planning, make sure you follow your state's requirements for execution, including the number of witnesses required and whether your signature needs to be notarized. Although an attorney is not required, you may wish to consult with an attorney if you have any questions or concerns.
